Laser Hair Removal Season
Laser hair removal and sun tans are not friends, so it is hard for some people to commit to their laser hair removal during the summer months, when the weather is beautiful and we are spending a lot of time outside. Fall is the perfect time to start back up on your treatments as the cooler weather begins, and the sunny days fade away.
Avoiding sun exposure before, and during your laser treatments will help you avoid unwanted complications and side effects, like pigmentation changes in the skin. Sun exposure during laser hair removal can damage skin and give you a less than ideal treatment result. Using a laser on your skin after sun exposure can give you burns and other unwanted side effects. It is best to stay out of the sun for the two weeks before your treatment, as well as the two weeks after. This is because your skin will be much more sensitive to the heat and light of the UV rays. So, of course, this makes fall the most popular choice for starting laser hair removal.
Fall is the perfect time to start out your laser hair removal treatments, because by next summer, you won’t need to worry about shaving daily for smooth skin. Laser hair removal treatments are spaced between 4-8 weeks apart, depending on the area being treated, and you’ll need to do roughly 6-8 sessions to complete your treatment for your best results. Each treatment you can expect about a 20% reduction in hair, it will get sparser, finer, and eventually, it will stop growing! Laser hair removal is great for those who struggle with ingrown hairs, redness, and irritation from razors, those who are tired of growing out their hair for painful waxing treatments, or those who just want a more permanent solution to tackling unwanted hair.
Starting at the beginning of fall will give you lots of time to complete your treatments before you bring out the shorts and t-shirts again, which means now is the best time to start if you’re looking to ditch your razor by next summer!
